A popsicle, freeze pop, ice lolly, ice block, icy pole, ice pop, or freezer pop is a water-based frozen snack. It is made by freezing flavored liquid around a stick. Often, the juice is colored artificially. Once the liquid freezes solid, the stick can be used as a handle to hold the ice pop. When a popsicle does not have a stick, it is called, among other names, a freezie.
